Determining Whether You Should File For Your Long Term Disability Benefits Due To Your Diabetes Or It’s Complications
Over 1 in 10 Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. Diabetes can cause nerve damage which, in turn, causes tingling and numbness in feet and hands. It can even cause problems with your vision. Worse yet, diabetes can lead to kidney disease or cardiac disease. The complications of diabetes can be devastating!
What You Should Do If Your Doctor Told You To Stop Working From Diabetes
If your physician has told you that it’s time to stop working before you make any move, it’s time for you to consult with experienced long term disability attorney Nancy Cavey who can:
– review with you your policy,
– explain the terms of the policy,
– determine whether or not your diabetes or complications can be excluded under a pre-existing condition clause in your policy,
– review your medical records and make sure that you’ve got the medical support that you need to file a winning claim,
– help you pick the right date of disability and
– help you file your initial application.
What If I’ve Been Denied My Long Term Disability Benefits?
If you purchased your policy through your employer you’re most likely covered under the ERISA Act. You’ll only have 180 days in which to file an appeal, and if you don’t, you can destroy your rights to file a lawsuit in Federal Court. ERISA is a complex Federal law that can make it difficult for disabled policy holders to get the disability benefits they deserve. Don’t let the delay destroy your claim.
If you’re thinking of applying for disability benefits or your claim has been denied as a result of your diabetes or its complications, it’s time for you to contact experienced long term disability diabetes attorney Nancy Cavey who can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
